Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Hamilton Building / Canadian Bank of Commerce Building (Broadway Avenue, Killarney, RM of Killarney-Turtle Mountain)

Formerly located on Broadway Avenue in Killarney, a two-storey brick building was built in 1905 as a branch for the Bank of Hamilton. In 1923, the bank merged with the Canadian Bank of Commerce and became the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce after a 1961 merger with the Imperial Bank of Canada.

The bank closed on 24 September 1979 and moved to a newly constructed building across the street. Heavily renovated throughout the years, the former bank building was later occupied by an auto parts store. It was demolished sometime between 2015 and 2018.
